Stratovarius to Headline Tuska Sunday

Post by AMBR@BEC » Thu Jun 14, 2007 3:20 pm

Just announced that that Stratovarius will be headlining Tuska Sunday, July 1. For some reason, I totally didn't expect that, but I'm certainly pleased! Always love to see this band, even if there won't be new material yet, and my traveling buddy has never seen them. Will be a great way to end a long vacation. Anyone else on going?

Totally a surpise! But really cool. 8)

No certain idea yet if I could go there but at least I would be very interested. Will see it during this week could I go or not. :)

Sure! Would be great. I'm always up for meeting new people. Looking forward to running into you and anyone else. Maybe people want to post what bands/after shows they will see and maybe we can hook up for a beer or something. Anyway, I'll be taking photos at the start of many of the sets. I'll be easy to find. Don't be shy; say hi!

Excellent show, cannot describe it better! The audience had lots of fun during the gig. :headbang:

In my opinion the setlist was really nice, specially Visions (fit well with Tuska 10th anniversary ;-)), A Million Light Years Away and the special one Hold on to Your Dream. And the ballad choice Will My Soul Ever Rest in Peace was so cool. Guess even ST managed to like it.

Hey, sorry I missed meeting everyone. I got caught talking to someone with only 2 songs to go and didn't escape until about a half hour after it ended. Didn't see any of you around. :( Took photos of everyone on the barrier, but still don't see you guys. :? Ah well, next time I guess.
Did anyone go see Tarot at Tavastia afterwards?

Have a ton of photos I hope to post soon, but just got in late last night and I'm suffering major jet lag and a nasty cold, so it'll have to wait a couple days. Very nice photos already posted.
